Encore Bank Enhances Its HSA Offering

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (May 4, 2023) -- Encore Bank today announced it has partnered with Lively Inc., one of the highest-rated providers in the country, to offer an innovative Health Savings Account (HSA).

Part of Encore’s promise to clients is to provide a modern boutique banking experience with an unprecedented level of service. Encore Bank Health Savings Account, powered by Lively, delivers on that promise, with unparalleled 360-degree service at every step.

“We are dedicated to continuously improving our clients' experience and assisting them in achieving their financial goals,” said Burt Hicks, Encore’s president and chief strategy and growth officer.  “We are thrilled to offer our enhanced HSA product. Lively’s intuitive platform, unparalleled service and engaging education will help our commercial clients and their employees realize the full potential of their HSAs and maximize satisfaction with their benefits.”

As of 2022, the average family health insurance premium has increased a staggering 43% since 2012 and continues to rise. With employers shouldering a larger percentage of employee healthcare costs, they’re seeking alternatives like the High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP), which offers employees a lower monthly premium and a higher deductible. Pairing an HDHP with an HSA enables employees to set aside pre-tax money for qualified medical expenses and can drive savings for employers and employees.

The new Encore HSA provides multiple investment options, enhanced HSA functionality for account holders and administrators, and it makes paying for healthcare easier and less expensive with a triple tax-advantaged and portable savings account.

“More than ever, employers are looking for better ways to balance employee wellbeing and the bottom line,” said Alex Cyriac, CEO and co-founder of Lively. “Our partnership with client-centric companies like Encore will help employers effortlessly deliver a modern solution, without the usual headaches.”
